Marine Maternity Session

This beautiful maternity session comes to us from Amber Hope Photography!  A few words from her about the session… This sweet couple, Adrian and Gina, were anticipating the arrival of their first little one. I wanted to do something special, something different. After speaking with Gina we decided to do somewhat of a themed session. We both loved the 1940’s photographs with the men kissing their wives from the trains. That is what inspired the location we chose to photograph their session

USMC Newborn Photography

This lovely newborn shoot comes to us from Tiffany McNutt Photography!  This is her sweet daughter Bridgette and husband Justin, who is currently serving in the US Marines.  Here is a few words from Tiffany about the session… This session is a little more special to me since we welcomed a beautiful little girl into our family. I knew right away after finding out the gender I wanted her to have a special session with my husband while he is still Active Duty in the Marine Corps. Who needs Prince Charming when you have your very own Marine in Dress Blues? He is going to be missing a lot of her first year of life and many milestones, so this newborn session was a must for me to capture them together! I know years down the road they will cherish these images!

US Army Family Photography

This lovely US Army family session comes to us from Morgan Slade Photography!  A little bit about the session…

I loved photographing the Fielder family. My focus for their session was to capture the flag. It was a dark and cloudy day, and I was certain that our session would be rained out but luckily mother nature obliged and gave us some gorgeous skies. I love the contrast between the sky and the flag in these shots!

A Wounded Warrior Homecoming

This emotional Wounded Warrior homecoming comes to us from Lauren Riggs Photography! 

A little bit about this family’s special homecoming day:
I had the honor of photographing this sweet family’s homecoming a few weeks ago, and I am super excited to share it with you all! Chelsea first messaged me and asked me to be there when she and her husband surprised their girls that Daddy was finally home, but as I heard more about her story I just knew that I needed to be there at Denver International Airport to photograph the whole story of him coming home to his loving wife as well.
Max and Chelsea’s story truly touched my heart and hit very close to home, so much that I was in tears as she explained the details of his deployment leading up to the homecoming(my husband was hit during a mortar attack and so it brought back so many emotions). Spc. Burk deployed from Fort Carson, Colorado February of this year and left behind a beautiful and strong wife as well as three very sweet and precious little girls. Chelsea and the girls stayed busy like most of us family members have while waiting for their soldier to return home. The months were passing along and they stayed in touch as much as possible and the way she speaks about their connection and the love they have for one another really shows you how strong of a bond they share. Then one day Chelsea received a dreaded phone call on July 20th. The vehicle Max and his fellow soldiers were riding in was struck by an IED. His side was smashed and he couldn’t feel his leg. The soldiers had to pull his leg out and there was instant swelling as well as several tears in the bottom half of his leg, and he suffered from a concussion. He was flown to Germany for recovery until he was strong enough and then sent home to Fort Carson for the remainder of his recovery.
Then we got to go back to Fort Carson to surprise her girls who knew daddy would be coming home soon, they just had no clue it would be that day! Sgt. Burk was determined to walk up to his girls without the crutches and truly surprise him…such a sweet moment to see their girls’ faces light up!
